Beautiful gauze!
Reviewer: Stephani

This is a beautiful, loose-woven gauze that floats like a dream. It tightened up a bit after 3 washing and tumble dries, which is what I was hoping for. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because there was SO MUCH lint. I had to empty the lint trap a few times during the drying cycle. I realize most reasonably priced linens are woven from shorter fibers these days, but it's still a little disappointing. Nevertheless I am very satisfied with my 8 yards of linen gauze and look forward to wearing them as an 18th century chemise a la reine! Perfect for a sweltery southern summer. PS. I would love to see a linen voile offered!

Material itself is nice
Reviewer: Brenda

Though my material is nice, I am a little unhappy with the cut. It was not a skimpy cut, but it was quite crooked. By the time it was washed twice and straightened, it came to a bare three yards. In two washings and dryings, I took close to a cup of lint from my dryer. That doesn't alarm me much, but I will begin to notice skimpy cuts and crooked cuts. There was also a tiny profit on the very expensive mailing. It arrived in a USPS priority mail envelope. After a week, why not just send it regular mail and cut the shipping rate? Just thoughts of possible solutions for all parties. And please, cut carefully!

Sheer Curtains
Reviewer: Christine

I always loved the feel and look of linen for curtains and also wanted the light to get through. IL021 is the perfect fabric. Washed twice with Oxiclean white revive to get read of the ivory tone. Easy to iron and work with.

High Quality Linen
Reviewer: Mary Ann

Very pleased with this linen very strong yet light weight. Have not made anything yet. My plans are to make a blouse and attempt heirloom sewing using a wing needle. I am so fascinated with this technique. Looking forward to starting my project. Will post a picture when finished.

Very nice.
Reviewer: Kirsten

I was a little worried when I received this fabric. It was rather stiff. But after washing it twice and machine drying, the fabric softened up nicely. I'm looking forward to using it in my project.

More airy, and even spaces, than IL030. Just as wonderful!
Reviewer: Suzanne M

Lovely gauze. Lighter in weight, and with more air between threads than IL030. I think it's better for needlework, with each thread spacing being more even. Same requirements for finishing raw edges solidly before washing, of course! Very important, or you could ruin the ease of use. Love both of these gauze fabrics, can't pick a favorite yet. :) Both work excellent as lining in clothing, for stability and modesty, without sacrificing too much air flow. Also prefer both to cotton, for use with injuries.
